السلام عليكم, สวัสดี! 你好!
Hello! Hallo! Hola! Ciao! Olá! Bonjour!
Who am I?
You can call me Meijie. I love outdoor activities like walking in nature, hiking, jungle trekking, mountain climbing, camping, and off-roading. I had bachelor’s degrees in computer science from USA, and master’s degree in Multimedia from UK. I work as an academician and apart from working in the office, I spend most of my time in my land.
What is my project?
I am building a personal campsite for friends & family as well as some projects related to tourism and local attractions. These include building decks for the tents, gazebos, huts or small house. Most of the work will be outside. Other than that, there are many other things which need to be done such as general maintenance of the area, cutting and trimming trees, feeding fish, gardening, landscaping etc.
When do I need volunteers?
I am looking 2 – 4 volunteers to work in the months of February to March and July to September this year. For other months, we can arrange for house-sitting where you need to work on your own and prepare your own food as I may not be available all the time at the site.
Where is my place?
It consists of 2 houses, several small gazebos and camping ground. One of the houses is built in the orchard facing the Perik river. Behind this house, there is a National Forest Reserve where the surroundings consist of many natural habitats and amenity forest. Another house is built near the road and the fishing ponds; however, this house is no longer safe for living and just use for storage. There is a stream that goes in the middle of the land that separates these two houses. These places can be accessible by road and equipped with electricity, and 4G mobile phone line. The distance from my place to shops, clinic, school and public transport is 2km.

Objetivos de sustentabilidade da ONU que este anfitrião quer atingir
Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado
As most already known, Malaysia is an incredibly diverse country, containing many different ethnicities, languages, and religions. The location of my place is considered as in remote area even though the distance from the capital city is only 40km. The community is my place mostly are Muslim Malays who work in the area of agriculture, industries, private or government sectors. Travellers can learn about Malay language, culture, lifestyles, foods. If time permitted, travellers can also explore the amazing state of Kedah/Perlis with a personal touch.
Currently, I am looking for 2-4 volunteers who could help me perform physical work to build some projects related to tourism and local attractions such as building a deck for tent, hut/house using the locally available material like stones, brick, sands, bamboo, wood, cement etc. The volunteers would also be able to house-sit and provide their own food, when I am absent/away (if it happens).
